Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-reigning monarch, passed away at Balmoral at the age of 96.

She ascended to the throne in 1952 and ruled for 70 years.

Her eldest son Charles, the former Prince of Wales, will take the throne as the new King and ruler of 14 Commonwealth states.

The Buckingham Palace issued the following statement:

“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.

“The King and the Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”

The Buckingham Palace, in a recent statement, said that doctors had raised fears for the Queen’s health and advised that she continue to be under their care.

The palace stated in a press release: “Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision.”

 

The 96-year-old head of state’s absence from a virtual privy council meeting on Wednesday after being told to rest raised apprehensions about her well being.

 

It has been reported that Prince William is en route to be with her, and Prince Charles was present at her Scottish home.

Liz Truss, the prime minister, said: “The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime.”

“My thoughts – and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom – are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time”.
